Course content

Study an environmental engineering master’s that gives you the technical, professional, digital and transferable skills needed in industry.

If you have a first degree in engineering or natural sciences and want to specialise in environmental and sustainable processes, our new MSc is a good choice for you.

Our course teaches you the core environmental engineering principles and supplements this with the digital expertise needed in industry. You’ll learn how to use professional environmental management analysis and modelling IT packages for compliance, data processing and visualisation. On top of this, our degree develops your skills in interdisciplinary teamwork, effective communication, networking and time and resource management.

Taking a whole-systems approach, you’ll analyse and evaluate environmental and industrial processes to protect the biosphere. Our course uses problem-based learning methodologies to enable you to solve environmental problems while considering economic and legislative factors.

We balance taught units with design and research projects to give you a rounded learning experience. This helps you develop the techniques to analyse the technical, economic, environmental and social impact of human activities, industrial activities, resource efficiency and pollution, processes and product alternatives.
